The Working at Heights Training Program Standard has a modular format to allow for core theory training to be completed separately from practical training elements. There are two modules: Working at Heights Basics Theory and Working at Heights Practical.
After successful completion of the course all participants will be able to explain their rights and responsibilities with regard to working at heights, work at heights safely and in compliance with regulatory requirements, and select, inspect and use industry-standard personal fall arrest equipment, including a harness and lanyard.
The program consists of a written knowledge evaluation and a hands-on practical evaluation. Upon successful completion of both written and practical evaluations, participants will receive a 3 year working at heights certification.
All participants will be required to bring CSA footwear, CSA eye wear, a CSA hard hat and a valid photo ID to the training session.
Cost $200.00 +HST per GVCA member, $250.00 +HST per non-member
